Planted in west box of compass garden.

NOT Reticulated Iris (Iris danfordiae). Began to suspect what they sent was not what the label said when they grew too tall and took to long to bloom. Disappointing.
HamiltonSquare On January 14, 2018 Plant emerged
First time growing these so don't know when it will bloom here though it looks like it could happen this month. We'll see.
